Reshmi Tognatta,PhD, has been awarded the AARF for her project “Oligodendroglial- Vascular Interactions in Alzheimer’s Disease.” The Alzheimer’s Association Research Fellowship award is intended to support exceptional researchers who are engaged in their post-graduate work (i.e. postdoctoral fellows) and before they have their first independent faculty positions (i.e. Assistant Professor) and working in diverse areas […]
Katerina Akassoglou, PhD, has been elected into the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), a lifetime distinction by the world’s largest general scientific society. “I’m grateful to my lab members and collaborators for their immeasurable contributions to these studies over the past 20 years. Election to AAAS further encourages us to follow our curiosity […]
Katerina Akassoglou, PhD, senior investigator at Gladstone Institutes, has been named a fellow of the National Academy of Inventors (NAI). Election to NAI is the highest professional distinction given solely to academic inventors. “Election to the NAI further encourages us to pursue challenging problems in biology and medicine to develop urgently needed treatments for devastating human diseases.”

Study by the Akassoglou Lab showed that blocking a particular receptor protein of the BMP signaling pathway, effectively promoted the maturation of myelin-producing cells and myelin repair. To read the full article, click here.
Members of Akassoglou Lab working on a new study for new line of drugs to potentially stimulate myelin repair in the presence of toxic blood leaks in the brain. To view the full article, click here.
The Akassoglou Lab showed toxic blood leaks in the brain inhibiting remyelination with implications for the development of therapeutic strategies for neuro-repair in multiple sclerosis and other neurological diseases with blood-brain barrier disruption and myelin damage. From Petersen et al. BMP receptor blockade overcomes extrinsic inhibition of remyelination and restores neurovascular homeostasis. Pp. 2291-2301.
